Guest Reviews

It’s a cozy retreat group from all walks of life ” pretty much men and women including New York bankers, London lawyers and seasoned yogi’s and vegans from Australia and Europe. Over the next seven heavenly days we experience twice-daily yoga, meditation, ricefield walks, Ayurveda meals tailored to our ‘dosha’, a day of detox with the highpoint ” a glorious day of pure and astounding silence where we force ourselves to detach from our digital devices as another pathway to presence. For those seeking to live a more harmonious life and in tune with nature, others and themselves then Ayurveda is undoubtedly a health system worth exploring

Judy, Australia

Imagine. Imagine the scent of frangipani and gardenia. The taste of spices and exotic fruit. The slight of lush jungle vegetation interspersed with blossoms. The feel of sun on your skin, coiled by a continuous breeze. And the sound of water, constantly flawed, punctuated by unseen cricket. In this setting which pandered to our five senses we learn about each corresponding element. This is what Ayurveda is all about.

Nora, the Netherlands

A great gift for yourself, giving you guidance to live a healthier and happy life!

ONEWORLD’s holistic retreat lies in the hills of Ubud, Bali – about 1.5 km away from the hustle and bustle of the village center. The eco-friendly retreat is peaceful and serene, bordered by a small creek to the west and surrounded by jungle and rice fields.

We offer 14 comfortable and spacious rooms, two swimming pools, dining room, a yoga shala open to nature as well as a spa where you can enjoy high quality treatments. You will find lush gardens and pavilions to relax and indulge in the beautiful views. Should you wish to explore Ubud during free time, we offer shuttle bus service.

Each room is air-conditioned, has its own terrace/balcony and bathroom. Comfortable yet unpretentious. For our guests’ ultimate serenity, we welcome guests of a minimum age of 14 years. See all the facilities.


The ancient wisdom of Ayurveda equates food next to God. The “prana” or energy needed for the existence is through food. The right quality and quantity of diet that is congenial to one’s constitution helps maintain good health. You will be served fresh, tasteful and healthy meals based on Ayurvedic dietary principles, including the six Ayurvedic tastes (sweet, salty, sour, pungent, bitter and astringent).


During this week we will offer a day for detox to cleanse your body by releasing and flushing out toxins with the help of ayurvedic massages and ayurvedic fasting diet (one day only).


Part of your journey is enjoying the luxury of our skilled therapist’s hands. You will experience the magic of two relaxing Ayurveda treatments which will soothe your body and mind. Other treatments are available onsite, you may wish to view our spa menu.


The yoga offered in the retreat will be in accordance with the Ayurveda principles. The program will be a combination of asanas, pranayama and meditation. Dr. Aparna will also be giving a take-away yoga program to be done at home.


A new retreat happening every week led by experienced retreat leaders from Bali and abroad.
